Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treat Pops

Guys, why didn’t you tell me how delicious Rice Krispy treats are? I mean, it’s been a few years since I’ve tasted one, but I don’t remember them being this yummy. My mom used to make them all the time when I was a kid, and they were good, but definitely not my favorite. When I think about it, though, I’m pretty sure my mom never dipped her Rice Krispy treats into melted chocolate and/or sprinkled them with crunchy candy bits. And, everyone knows that snacks on sticks are superior to regular, boring old square snacks. So, I guess it’s possible that these chocolate covered Rice Krispy Treat pops are just better than the ones my mom made. Hmmm. Don’t…tell her…I said that…please…

But seriously, these Rice Krispy treat pops are amazingly delicious — chewy and crispy at the same time, delightfully sticky, and chock full of sugary, marshmallow-y goodness. Purists might think the chocolate and candy/sprinkle coating are overkill, but it’s not! It adds a whole different dimension of awesomeness to an otherwise humble treat. The rich chocolate flavor is a perfect complement to the sugary sweetness of the marshmallow, and the toffee bits (or nuts, or anything else you want to use) add texture and crunch to each bite. Oh, and because these treats are on a stick, they’re both portable and fun to eat! Could this be everyone’s new favorite party food?
